Beschreibung

Faszinierende Anwendungen, Beispiele und Übungen zum Thema der Fibonacci- und Lucas-Zahlen, für die sich Fachleute und Amateure gleichermaßen interessieren werden! Besprochen werden die Eigenschaften der Zahlen und zum Teil verblüffende Umsetzungen, u.a. in der Mustererkennung, der Beweistheorie, der Graphentheorie, der Matrizenrechnung und der Trigonometrie. Der Text macht neugierig und setzt nur mittlere mathematische Vorkenntnisse voraus. Willkommene Zugaben sind mathematikhistorische Einschübe und Kurzbiographien wichtiger Persönlichkeiten.
